Dan and Lincoln Markham from the What’s Inside? channel like to cut things apart to see what their guts look like. This time, they decided to disassemble an original 1985 Teddy Ruxpin talking bear using knives and a sledgehammer to reveal the toy’s innards.

This is the creepiest thing you will see all day. I promise. This mechanical skull comes from Japanese sculptor Y Nakajima, and is inspired by Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest. I’m telling you now, don’t watch unless you want to have nightmares.
This may be the first giant step toward a world full of human-like robots that hunt down humans like Terminators. I hope there’s a John Connor out there somewhere. The Suzumori Endo Robotics Laboratory has created artificial multifilament muscles and attached them to a human skeleton to allow for smooth motion.
